How to Train your Dragon, by Cressida Cowell (read by David Tennant)

How to Train Your Dragon - Cressida Cowell, David Tennant

Part 2 of our "streaming audio on the tv" experiment, and it's still going well. As an audiobook, this is short (about 3.5 hours) and really fun. (Part 1 was H2G2, so we're apparently still in the area of madcap british humour *).

Tennant does an awesome job narrating this, and we were both surprised just how different it was from the movies (which we both adore).  Daughter says she is going to see if the library has the rest of the books, she'd like to read them, so that's a win. I've suggested them to her before, and she just rolled her eyes at me "But i saw the movie already". If she brings them home, I highly suspect I'll nab them off her and read them myself too.


* (Somehow the British Humour thing led to me telling daughter about the Monster Raving Loony Party, which led to her finding their website and.... i suspect they would have a new member if she was British. She actually read (and mostly aloud, in fits of giggles) all their policy suggestions. She's very for their stand on declaring Pokemon an endangered species, although we both agreed that the position statement on dressing up animals in silly outfits only permissible if said animal can put on the outfit themselves, was taking things a bit far.)


Monty Python addiction can only be a matter of time.


(This choice of book btw, inspired by Just Another Reader's rather better review of this and the rest of the series ongoing, go read that review too :)
